Is Mugabe a hero or a villain? For you and I, the case of Africa's Hitler is clear cut. But not for the BBC as you can see below. That it even needs to ask the question "Mugabe: hero or villain" show show utterly rotten the State funded broadcaster has become. We could start with the genocide...
In 1982 Africa's Hitler sent the 5th Brigade into Matabeleland where for tribal reason the folks supported Joshua Nkomo not Mugabe and his Zanu PF party. They committed genocide. But that was small scale death.
When Mugabe took control of Zimbabwe it was known as "Africa's bread basket". It grew enough food to support itself and to export vast amounts of food to seven other African nations. According to the World Food programme
An estimated 1.5 million people – 16% of the population – are projected to be food insecure at the peak of the 2015-16 lean season,2) Nearly 28%of children under age five in Zimbabwe are stunted, or have heights too low for their age, as a result of chronic malnutrition. More than half (56%) of all children between the ages of 6 and 59 months suffer from anaemia
Starvation has killed far more folks in Zim than the 5th Brigade.
Then there are the rape camps, the seizure of property and assets from whites and blacks aside, the vast fortunes accumulated not only by Mugabe's wife "Gucci Grace" but by his entire family. There is the wholesale electoral fraud. There are the beatings, imprisonment and murders of anyone brave enough to stand up to the State.
Do I need to go on?
Mugabe is 100% villain. His soul, like that of Hitler, will burn in hell and the sonner he goes there the better. The failure of the BBC to accept this villain status clearly is shocking and another reason why Pravda is not fit to receive state funding.
